Cognitive skill development in children involves the progressive building of learning skills: attention, memory, and thinking. These are crucial skills necessary for children to process sensory information and ultimately use them in learning how to evaluate, analyse, remember, make comparisons and understand the cause and effect relation. A child’s genetic makeup is responsible for some cognitive development, but most cognitive skills are learned and therefore can certainly be improved with apt training. And as such, thinking and learning skills can be improved with practice and the right training.
Our intervention program assesses each child’s cognitive strengths and areas of weakness and thereafter improved through an intensive cognitive training, addressing weak learning skills and enhancing mental strengths.
Areas of mental skills we target:
- Attention: The ability to focus for sustained period of despite distractions.
- Working Memory: Retaining long-term information.
- Processing Speed: The speed of processing information.
- Visual Processing: Ability to make sense of information taken in through vision.
- Long-term Memory: Retrieval of stored information
- Auditory Processing: Active listening and taking instructions
- Logic and Reasoning: Problem solving, mathematics, and comprehension.
- Comprehension: Understanding and making sense of new information.
